Gate Creek Lodge

Perfectly located in the Petersville foothills, 125 miles from Anchorage and 123 miles from Denali National Park, we are 45 minutes from the adorable town of Talkeetna. Gate Creek Lodge is the ideal base camp for winter snowmachine riding or summertime relaxation and hiking. Treat your family to the warmth and comfort in one of six handcrafted vacation cabins with views of North America’s tallest mountain, Mt. McKinley. From 2-person cute and cozy cabins to groups of ten, we offer private lakeside cabins for rent. Summer guests enjoy community campfires, lake fishing and canoeing. Your on-site management team is ready to welcome you with Alaska warmth and hospitality. The Petersville area is ranked by many as Alaska’s premier winter recreational playground. Gate Creek Lodge gives you easy access to the Peters Hills, Dutch Hills, Denali State Park, and several glaciers, with over 400 miles of groomed and marked trails. You’ll enjoy incredible views of Denali/Mount McKinley, Mount Hunter, Mount Foraker and the entire Alaska Range mountains just a mile from your doorstep. For powder riders, there are over a million acres of meadows and frozen swamps to carve up. Or take a short ride up into the lower mountains for some safe hill climbing. Avalanches are rare in this area.
